Mod for folding chair storage - basement

Purchased two antigravity chairs last fall (on sale). Storing them has been difficult due to their size and they were always in the way when getting other items out. I just finished installing two shelves which hang from the basement ceiling.

I think this will improve access to the chairs and other items down there.

Very nice! I went the other way and put them directly on the floor but built a shelf that goes up and over them. It's made them a joy to use vs. a hassle to dig out.

And I went another way and built a roll out drawer to put lawn chairs in that rolls about half way out of the basement.

I always like your mods OC. Wish I had the patience and organized work shop.
My next is the stinky slinky fence post storage under the MH.

Thanks for your idea and comments. Please post some pics of your mod so others can see these three solutions and determine what works best for them.

Great mod! I always read your posts. We just have the rack that hangs on the ladder - we only carry the one lounger. This mod would be much nicer.

Surprisingly, I don't have any pictures of it installed- but shown below is the shelf that I made. It's either a 2x10 or 2x12 for the height of 2 chairs stacked. I actually put feet under it to raise is slightly more so that I can put my folding table down first and the chairs on top. I then am able to put stuff on top of the shelf itself of directly on the chairs. The chairs are always mostly accessible (ok, the plethora of kids stuff- bags, badminton rackets, golf clubs, you name it don't help!). But it is still a world better than it was before.

This is going to help me! DH can and will do this to help with the load in the basement. DH says traveling with me is like traveling with the circus - I take everything, including the animals.
